Henrietta The Dragon Slayer A Very Short PrequelBrought to you by OBS reviewer Andra

Summary

In this very short prequel, meet Henrietta the legendary Dragon Slayer before the grand adventure that changes her life. In which she meets mysterious fighters, recounts her tale in a raucous tavern of how she killed the Fire Dragon of Britham’s Keep, and meets Jaxter the Jester.

Enjoy this peek at Henrietta right before all of thrilling adventures of this young warrior on one final quest … against an opponent she swore never to face again.

A story for those who want a taste before plunging into the adventure of Henrietta The Dragon Slayer (Book 1), Henrietta and The Dragon Stone (Book 2), and Henrietta and the Battle of the Horse Mesa (Book 3) (coming soon!).

 

Review:

I found the base story engaging.  However, at times I found the writing style not to my liking and then out of the blue – I would be totally engaged again.

I liked when Henrietta came upon the tavern with its unique building design. Henrietta wondered

Was the tavern trying to be a castle, or a castle trying to be a tavern?  Its ambiguity pleased her.”

I found this thought making me like Henrietta even more.

The writing at times had me wondering, but the introduction to the main character, Henrietta was good. Had me definitely chuckling at one of Henrietta’s sayings….

In for a beer, in for a bed, she liked to say.”

Henrietta’s story-telling was filled with humor and excitement, keeping her audience captivated.  This is what I liked best about this short story.

I got the sense that the continuing story would be worth pursuing…Something I shall consider at a later date.  But as this prequel stands, I would definitely not classify it as a stand alone.  As a teaser, mission accomplished.
